13 Self-discipline Quotes That Will Help You To Be More

July 27, 2021

How often do you find yourself scrolling through social media or Netflix, and then realizing that hours have passed? Many people claim not to have time to work out, read or learn an extra skill but they have time to binge-watch tv or scroll mindlessly through social media. As Seneca said, “It is not that we have little time, but more that we waste a good deal of it”. If you have time to binge-watch an entire show on Netflix, then you can find time to learn a new skill or get in shape. If you find it difficult, this is a sign that it is time to get more disciplined. Below are 13 self-discipline quotes from philosophers, entrepreneurs and world leaders to help you be more self-disciplined.
